I remember the time we met like yesterday, she turned me on
She didn't have much to say but with a wink of an eye she led me on
Then she took me home
And I remember the look on her face as she began to say, baby now don't play games
'Cause you're what I want and I've got what you need, then all I could say was," honey don't you want to know my name?"
She didn't want my name

'Cause in the heat of the night you can forget the light
Sweet Honey's gonna' lay you down she's gonna' make it alright
Then by the light of the day she'll forget your name
You'll have one pleasant memory and she'll be on her way

I remember the gleam in her eye in the candlelight and the taste of her wine
She said baby don't feel no shame, lay back for the ride and let me ease your mind
I lost track of the time

The damage was done, the smell of perfume was still in the air when morning came
The note read, Hey, I had a real good time and by the way, what was your name?"
Now who's to blame

'Cause in the heat of the night you can forget the light
Sweet Honey's gonna' lay you down she's gonna' make it alright
Then by the light of the day she'll forget your name
You'll be another pleasant memory and she'll be on her way
'Cause in the heat of the night you can forget the light
Oh sweet Honey's gonna' lay you down... she's gonna' make it alright

Hey man good work. I just hope that dude wore some protection lol. The blues rock genre is a tough one for me. It's such a groove thing so it always comes across as kinda lazy in the song realm. But you've done the best you can here. Tasty fills, a fun story, good solo. This would be good to hear in a live setting. Cheers!

Cool funk sound. Great job on this.

There might be an opportunity to do a musical pause in one of the instrumental parts with an almost spoken "Sweet honey what was your name?" just to reinforce that part.

But it sounds pretty damn good as it is!

Ha! That's not a bad idea...
Just have to come up with an interesting way to "speak/sing" that line... Jerry Reed? :)

Hey, JAPOV... I can taste this one and it’s hot and spicy! Music and vocals fit superbly. Slow and moody. Got that Louisiana country blues feel to it that I remember when I was stationed at Ft. Polk. Great job!

Yea, JAPOV... I was in the Army during the Vietnam War, but I’m USAF retired.

I don’t eat anything in a shell or creatures with whiskers as a general rule. But I do love the Deep South.

As always - I love the guitar! I like the mood and groove of the music. This story is fun and amusing.

I will nitpick one small, probably irrelevant thing.

This guy asks if the woman wants his name, but she doesn't. Later she forgets his name. She can't forget it because she didn't know it.

This part made me chuckle: "The note read, Hey, I had a real good time and by the way, what was your name?" Now who's to blame
